The Colony Park Sustainable Community Initiative began as a three-year master planning process supported through a $3 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant. The culmination of this planning process was the adoption of the Colony Park Master Plan and Design Guidelines and Planned Unit Development (PUD) zoning district for the 208-acre parcel of publicly-owned land located on Loyola Lane between Johnny Morris Road and Decker Lane.
The City of Austin Economic Development Department is now working to ensure that the next phase of the project, the Implementation Phase, is successful. During this phase, the City will work with community partners to search for a Master Developer through a formal Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and Request for Proposal (RFP) process. We believe that with this two-step process we can secure a Master Developer who will work with city staff and the community to realize the Colony Park vision.
Community Video Presentation:
The City will be hosting a Public Open House and Community Video Presentation for the Colony Park Sustainable Community. This is a family fun event featuring an exclusive screening of the Master Developer's proposal for the publically owned land in Colony Park. Attendees will have an opportunity to score the video and provide feedback.
The event will include free food and games, a walking photo exhibit, and the chance to view a short-video presentation by the Master Developer. This will be the final opportunity for community members to vote–so don't miss the fun!

Colony Park District Park is expected to offer outdoor recreation opportunities that promote physical activity and healthy living.

Long Metropolitan Park Master Plan will help determine the long-range vision for the entirety of the park, including areas currently used by other organizations.
